citywide confidence we needed to do on our soft story buildings we're confident that will help save lives and properties. that's not all we did we want to make sure our city is safer and in addition, we started a lifelines council one of the first in the country we'll dial and have meetings with our utility providers that lifeline has been critical because of their silos they have their approach to disaster that was never contemplated with our fire and police and public utilities commission by creating that
11:01 am
lifeline council and having a dialog on each party to match how do you get the workforce back into the city to recovery kwiblg what were the proprietors to match up and we didn't have that ability until we created the lifeline council meeting. it's working well, it's just the beginning we have adapt sf another program that mayor bates has signaled the sea levels of are rising as we see it hit ocean beach we have a moofrt plan to respond rather than fight nature we have to understand it. adapt sf is getting all our departments whether the port or public works or all the other entities working together to we
11:02 am
can look at the enter dependent agencies can understand their roles and therefore create projects will r that will give you us more synergy across the departments pr i think we're extinct not only to be part of the resilient cities before you have our that fir chief officer work across the departments. what we learned in new orleans and it repeats itself how the a little don't work across they're silos and recognizing our challenges to work with not only new orleans folks but on a state
11:03 am
basis and particularly are with the sea level rises it offers a great opportunity we don't know where the earthquake is going to be and the more ready we're region lake erie the better off we'll be this is another part of the investment process across the world folks have to have to invite businesses into our cities we have to be more ready than we ever r ever is where been it's not enough to have great programs but to understand what the rest of the world is doing but it begins with us and a as mayors take on opportunity and saying to ourselves we have to work in our own silos it not enough but to understand the collaboration of the agencies
11:04 am
and once we get across those things we're going to be better a more resilient and smarter city. this is where i met 1yurg9 was on the first meetings we were all talking about the innovations and this can be month more important to inviting businesses to be here. as the city administer i'm happy to launch those things with kelly who's been doing more in this area. i want to thank the rockefeller foundation and it's incredibly important for any city that after an event so is to the citizens did we do enough and fulfilling the promises as world-class cities to learn from
11:05 am
each other and i think part of this one hundred resilient cities is all about. thank you very much >> mayor from oakland. >> this used to be in competition and sharing and stealing from each other on the seismic work it is probably one thing we've taken on the challenge of getting ready for the big one whether the santa ana debris fault or the hayward. this issue is a very person. a lot of people know i'm the mayor of oakland today probably because of the great san francisco wraeshth but chinatown were not allowed much help in the golden gate park encapacity
11:06 am
so many of the chinese-americans and others ended up in adam pr so i've been touched by that. in the context of what we're doing today, i wanted to say that most of the changes the progressive changes on issues of climate change and are really being implemented at the city level it's no wonder is one hundred cities signed up and the uncouldn't get nations to sign it's no surprise on electric cars, etc. and how we have smart growth happening at the city level this is why it's interesting this collaborative sister of cities almost were also in competition for being the greatest cities and in
11:07 am
competition to be greener we're going to be helped with the rockefeller foundation grant. i was in new york and understand this is a big incision. what upstairs in the world will be happening in the major regions around the world how will we deal with the cultural whether to include the poor in our cities as well as the rich and the cultural changes reflected a sdpifs population. and in every country today no less in the bay area they've been dealing with the "x" public utilities commission from apartments we're that taking on a major change of rent control in oakland tomorrow. those issues surround the context of what we're doing to make our cities important resilient.

when i became a school member 25 years ago what we had an earthquake and firestorm within my first few years of being in politics. i remember at any very first meeting someone i asked how faithful are our schools during an earthquake and they said we don't want you to know but i said we need to know. and i passed the school bonds to study we were rebuilding 6 schools over and over the next few years i was lucky to be on the citywide board planning for incurs we've been together for decades each step we're improving i want to leave us today, we're trying to expand our neighborhoods core groups
11:09 am
those are citizens responding to earthquakes. i find as mayor those groups help to organize and protect each other. i was on the street yesterday when i said, you know, what happens to mrs. such and such is she still in her home she's still in her home because of the surrounding folks it makes it a better neighborhood that people care about each other and today in oakland any challenge as mayor i'm trying to get i did not know folks involved where young amending men in particular are not graduating if high school and not getting jobs are 3 times more likely to be unemployed and how do you build
11:10 am
hope. i'm excited because the rockefeller foundation has a broad vision and they're to help us on earthquake resiliency and how in our hearts can we take on any challenge. being the mayor of oakland there's probably things i have not thought of that needs to be look at. this is what we'll be talking about how do you build a community and neighborhood that can take on any chooj >> i think you've heard from the 3 comments the thread of building resilience but being ready for the energy for climate change when is certainly on everyone's mind but building the community capacity we're talking about be building neighborhood
11:11 am
